RAM's Edge is an admissions guide for MBA, JD and graduate school candidates. The RAM's Edge strategies emanate from author Ryan A. Merchant's experience of being admitted to an Ivy League graduate school despite having low test scores and a 2.8 GPA. The core of the guide is the author's LIP strategy; an approach which instructs applicants how to appropriately address their areas of weakness, and also package their application in a manner that highlights their strengths. Among the topics covered are: bad grades, low test scores, strategies for career changers, applying to top-tier programs and strategies for overrepresented demographics.Most applications are goingtohave anoptional essay thatmoreor lessasks youtostateanythingof importance that you feel is relevantto yourcandidacy. ...
